Franz got back from boy scout camp last night and is off to work. Said that Z was having a good time. Some challenges with the swimming --- he's working on the swimming merit badge --- but he seems to be persevering.
I managed to watch the second episode of Deadwood. At one point, one of the ladies that lives over the saloon advertised her services as the best b---j-- ever (or something like that). According to wikipedia, that phrase was not used in that way until the 1960's. It might be minor, but that sort of lack of attention to period detail irritates and distracts me.
I also watched some more Northern Exposure. I wasn't clear yesterday, anyone not in Seattle would probably not know that this show was filmed in Roslyn, Washington, about two hours east of Seattle. None of the scenery is Alaskan. So, yes, now that I know the local mountains better, it is a distraction watching the show, but the writing is so clever I can overlook it or even enjoy the anomalies. I just saw the episode where they visit Snoqualmie Falls and make some Twin Peaks jokes --- something I would not have understood first time around.
My striped painting experiment worked out quite well, I think. Now to pick up the picture frame glass today, assemble the frames and finally hang the watercolors my mother in law gave me over a year ago.
Knitting? I've been back in log cabin land. Relaxing easy knitting for tv watching. I'm progressing on my first sleeve for Cinxia too, but slowly. I really wanted it done for my trip back east next week, but it won't be. However, given the weather on the east coast, I bet I won't miss it.
